Farrington's Isthmionikai online

As of January 2018, all ca. 300 Isthmia-victors collected by Andrew Farrington (2012) are added to the online database. Apart from adding their victories at the Isthmia, we also added other known victories by these athletes and musicians.
We are currently in the process of checking the consistency of these entries and updating them.

  • Moretti's Imperial Olympionikai and Brunet's Ephesian athletes online

    For the past two months, we have been entering data from two prosopographies, viz. the athletes from the Imperial period listed in Moretti's 'Olympionikai' (1957) and Brunet's collection of Ephesian athletes, from his 1998 dissertation, 'Greek Athletes in the Roman World: The Evidence from Ephesos'. Save some problematic cases, we are happy to announce that we will finish working on these lists this week. Users can now search through the data of over 500 athletes and musicians who won more than 3000 victories. And for those of you who wondered: no, these over 3000 victories are not largely made up of Emperor Nero's 1808 victories (as claimed by Cassius Dio). Only the victories by Nero that are linked to actual festivals in ancient sources have been added to the database as separate victories. The almost eighty recorded victories by Valerius Eklektos have of course been added separately.
